Glass & Water
Words of Yoshioka arranged in butoh-fu notation by Fraleigh.
Begin with a glass: Improvise by holding water in your body as you would
in a glass. Without the glass, the water gets spilled, but it’s not the
purpose to keep the water in the glass either. Let someone drink the
water, but be aware of the glass container. Now let this process change
further and faster through the following butoh-fu:
Shed Your Skin
Form and life are chasing each other,
The invisible and the visible see each other.
Produce heat through friction, and
Guide your body into a state of dance.
Balance chaos with control –
Like a calm rider on a stampeding horse.
